Bart Simpson got the best of KTVU?
Okay, I admit, I laughed, I laughed hard. Does that make it right? Absolutely not! The NTSB intern who provided the names has been fired.
However, KTVU is catching flack for this royal screw up on their behalf. I agree this is racist and wrong and the checks and balances that happen between the time the news break came out to the time it reached the news announcer royally failed!
Do I blame the announcer? No. I don’t believe it dawned on her what was going on. It only confirmed to me that they are not there to think and be critical of the news, but rather are empty shells (air heads?) that just blurt out the news. I think it is time for us to have Max Headroom announce the news and be done with it.
